What am I doing? Well, a little of this and a little of that. I have projects and am trying real hard not to rush to get them all done at once.

I have been getting my bird feeding stations ready for the winter feeding season. I have started putting out some seed and of course my feathered friends want MORE, MORE, MORE. The hummingbirds are here but can tell many are passing through on their southward journey. I saw our first southbound flight of geese several weeks ago - three weeks earlier than last year. The yellow finches showed up a couple of weeks ago and they are so much fun to watch. Jim just loves their constant cheeping. And we have the Gambel Quail. I just love how they move in single file where ever they go. You will just have to visualize all these birds as I never have my camera with me, I just sit out on the bench under the mulberry tree, drinking my morning coffee, and watch all the antics going on.
I have also been trimming my cactus hedge. They are creeping up over my neighbor's metal roofed sheds, so it's trim time.

I have met my surgeon who will do my breast cancer surgery on Thurs 9/24. Dr Maria Halsted is a very likable person and ignoring all the big words she used I understood a lot of what she was telling me - especially the word "if". I feel I am in very capable hands.
My very "astute" brother (he will laugh at that word) will be coming to visit in early October. I can hardly wait as it has been 4 years since I have seen him. This is the main reason why I wanted my surgery a couple of weeks before he gets here. Then I want to be able to do things when daughter Juno comes to visit over the Thanksgiving holidays and my radiation treatments will be over with by then.
